Has anyone taken Unisom and Vitamin b6 for morning sickness? I am 6w3d pregnant with my 5th baby and am just starting to feel sick. I usually get really, really bad morning sickness that lasts 16 weeks or so. My friend recommended 1/2 tablet of unisom and 25mg. B6 every 10 hours. She took it for her last 2 babies and they are fine. Plus, I know another friend that is taking it right now and it is helping her alot. I have researched it and it seems pretty safe. I will be calling and asking my dr., but I just wanted to know if anyone here has taken this before and if it helped you and if the baby was fine? I did not take this (didn't know about it) with my other babies and I am just nervous to try something new. But, I get so sick and I just can't see taking care of 4 children in that condition. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
P.S. I have had a molar pregnancy before (and 2 miscarriages)and I am 38 years old (lots of reasons for high risk, I guess) and I just found out that I have to wait till January 23 to have an official ultrasound...seems so far away!! :o(
When I was really sick with my DD, I took a half tablet unisom at night, since I got night sick, not morning sick, anyway, it work wonderings. This time around, nothing seemed to work, I did try the additonal b6, I'm over the MS now, so all is good.
Yes, it is safe. It is what my Dr. recommended for me to take when I wasn't feeling well. The only problem with it is that it makes you so sleepy! Hope you feel better soon. Luckily, I only felt bad for a little over 3 weeks.
My dr told me that Unisom was safe too. I have severe night/morning sickness and was put on compazine for the vomiting. I would not worry..I have a friend ready to go (35 weeks) and she is on Unisom for sleeping purposes, she has pregnancy insomnia. Good luck!
